With crackling log fires, exposed Tudor oak beams and squeaky floors, The Crown Framlingham is a pub filled with history and rural charm. Wholesome gourmet pub recipes are served alongside world beers, with a tranquil al fresco area perfect for relaxed drinking and dining.
Seasonal British dishes are found on the Crown Framlingham menu, beautifully presented and with unique touches. To start, there is ham hock and pea shoot terrine with croute and wholegrain remoulade, while for mains there are regional flavours such as the locally made Bloody Mary sausages with spiced bean, garlic mash and crisp pancetta. Fresh seafood delicacies are seen in dishes like pan-fried cod with local asparagus, seafood bisque and crab beignets, and there are vegetarian delicacies like fresh mint risotto with feta, roasted courgette and basil crisps.
Local flavours continue on the dessert menu at The Crown in Suffolk, such as the homemade apple crumble with a hint of cinnamon served with homemade rhubarb ice cream, as well as the locally produced ice cream selection. The Crown Framingham wine list is extensive, with bottles from all across the globe, and there is also a selection of international beers.
Filled with traditional charm, and surrounded by historic local sights such as the 11th-century Framlingham Castle, The Crown is a 13-minute drive from Wickham Market Rail Station.

A pleasant meal. The roast and a few other things had run out on the Sunday evening that we stayed, but the alternatives were enjoyable enough. Service was very friendly and accommodating.

I don't like leaving a negative review and have had OK visits to The Crown, but I was disappointed with our meal and our overall experience on Sunday 17th June. The service was slow (even though there were not many people in the restaurant) and the food was not particularly inspiring. Two of my children had burgers which were served without salads and no dressings offered. The chips looked slightly overcooked. My rocquefort sad could have done with another ingredient, possibly pear, to break the dish up a bit. As I said, service was slow. The place is beginning to look a little shabby and a bit less pristine that I recall from the past. It may have been that we ate late (1.30) and the restaurant had been very busy, but this was an underwhelming visit.

Very good service. Very limited menu - perhaps too limited - but food was good. Nice relaxed atmosphere.

We were very happy with our meals and the service although two of the party are vegans and there wasn't much for them to choose from.

Great return visit. the Crown is the focal point in the heart of the market square and has a good ambience. We had an early dinner on Saturday evening and by the time we left, most tables were full. Good menu selection, excellent service. Always good returning to my home town.

Our lunch (for 3) was a bit of a mixture. Our starters were fine. Unfortunately, however, 2 of us had chosen Lambshank for our main course but these were far too tough and had to be returned. Also, there was an absence of vegetables. However, the waiter was very responsive to this problem and immediately offered alternative replacements. Fish and Chips were chosen by both as replacements and these were fine. The waiter said the Lamb was part of a new order only received in that morning. Otherwise there were no problems.
